Abstract

We examine how short-termism results from the dissolution of the corporate network. We argue that the board interlock network served as a collective resource that helped corporate elites to mitigate short-termism. Using three indicators of short-termism, we identify a structural basis for short-termism that links network-based resources to managers' decisions.
